How to Reach Old City Hall

It is important to know how to reach visit Old City Hall for all tourists looking forward to a trip to this monument. The Old City Hall of Colombo is an important place in Ceylonese culture and history and a very frequently visited tourist spot.  

The easiest way is definitely to take E03 Highway and follow it straight past Ragama and Peliyagoda to reach the monument. But this route has tolls along its course. A faster route might be to take E03 Highway and then peel off to Canal Road and follow it straight to the destination. This is how to reach visit Old City Hall by road from the nearest airport. Popular traveling options include tuk-tuk rides and cabs.

A similar approach to how to reach visit Old City Hall from Colombo Harbor, which is the closest harbor to town is applicable. The best route is to take AC6 Highway, but its use is restricted. A smarter route might be to take Colombo Port Main Road to AC20 and then move onto Darley Road via AC6. This thirty-minute journey (by car) is roughly eight and a half kilometers away from Colombo Harbor.  

Another solution is to take a train to Fort Railway station and then take a cab. The common routes include AC6, A2, and A4 Highways. They all take the same time to reach. The Tuk-tuk rides are particularly famous here.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      Thanks to Muaadh and Red Globe team for excellent planning and execution of the Trip. We had a great trip to Sri Lanka. Special Shoutout to Muaadh for always being there to answer my queries and following up. He understood my requirement and came with itenery with highly competitive quotes. Ifaz received us at Colombo Airport. He was very friendly and courteous. He provided all instructions that we needed for our trip. We were given a Toyota Prius car and Mr Umais was our Driver for the entirety of the trip. Umais was very well behaved and covered all places mentioned in itenery. He made some good suggestions about things to do and places to eat. All hotels were excellent except for Concord Grand at Colombo, which was average but surprisingly it had a great breakfast. Sigiriya Lion Rock was a great experience. We absolutely loved the Train trip from Nuwara Eliya to Ella. View from Ravana Face hotel at Ella was breath Taking. Laluna Resort at Bentota was great and Para Motoring at Bentota was a good experience.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      From the moment we were picked up from the airport, the hospitality and attention to detail by the guides and planner was mind-blowing! Mashal, from TourBirds company, organized an amazing family trip for 6 nights and 7 days. We had private drivers throughout our trip. The itinerary was excellent and very well planned to ensure we see the main attractions of every city we were visiting. Ahmed, one of our drivers made sure we cover the places in time. We also managed to include a few more spots as well. Our guides/drivers were very supportive and we particularly enjoyed their (Ahmed and Shabbudeen's) company. Our tour planner, Mashal, recommended all of our hotels and we were delighted with them. It truly was the best and most efficient, stress-free way to see Sri Lanka and we highly recommend this tour company.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      We had a very nice vacation to Sri Lanka. It's a beautiful country and people are polite, will go out of the way to help. The trip could have been better, if we were given a lake view room in Kandy, which was requested but did not happen. Our guide cum driver was an excellent person, he made our trip a success. A very knowledgeable person, punctual and gave us all the tips to make our holiday a wonderful experience.

      Happy with the trip organised by Suri travels.the driver was very polite and flexible as per our schedule..just wish we had more time to spend in Sri Lanka as we travelled daily apprx 2 hours which made the trip bit hectic..overall fab experience.. Anuradhapura and Sigiriya were the best places to visit in Sri Lanka.
